Home Buyers Survey in Summertown and Botley

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller said subsidence may be a concern impacting the apartment. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the home survey review?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be fixed on a reasonable budget. Additionally, most homes in Summertown and Botley are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground and could then become unsteady and start to slip downhill. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then decomposes, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
